     President Edler called the regular monthly meeting of the Iola Village Board of Trustees to order at 6:00 p.m. at the community center. President Edler made the open meeting statement that this meeting and all other meetings of this Board are open to the public. Proper notice has been posted and given to the press in accordance with Wisconsin Statutes so the citizenry may be made aware of the time, place and agenda of this meeting. Board members present; President Edler, Trustees Rasmussen, Murphy, Fenn, Briquelet and Parks. Trustee Harper was excused. Others present; clerk Johnson, attorney Meagher, Glenn Tetzlaff, Officer Field and Holly Nueman. President Edler led the Board in the pledge of allegiance.

     Moved by Jim Rasmussen, seconded by Pamela Parks, to approve minutes of the last regular meeting of July 9 as written and amended, motion carried.

     Moved by Terry Murphy seconded by Missy Fenn, for the Board to accept the monthly police statistical report as prepared by Chief Prahl, motion carried.

     Public Works Director Glenn Tetzlaff gave a report. For the 2018-2019 snow season, he will assist the Townships of Scandinavia and Iola in plowing snow on selected streets adjacent to the Village. The charge will be $85.00 per hour. This will allow for $50.00 per hour for use of the vehicle and $35.00 per hour to reimburse the Village for the cost of the labor.

     In the Town of Scandinavia it will include South Ridge, Woodland Drive, Oak Ridge and Keatings Lake Road.

     The Town of Iola will only involve Lakeshore Drive. No salting or sanding will be done by the Village.

     Glenn estimated it would take approximately two (2) hours to include these additional streets for a normal snow fall. This agreement will be only for the upcoming winter season to determine if the arrangement is suitable for the Village. If so, consideration will be given to extending the relationship to future years.

     Following the presentation, the arrangement was unanimously approved.

     At approximately 6:20 p.m., it was moved by Jim Rasmussen, seconded by Kathy Briquelet, and unanimously approved to adjourn into a public hearing to consider a recommendation from the Plan Commission regarding the zoning change for the lot located at 295 East State Street. No member of the public made a presentation to the Board. Accordingly, it was moved by Jim Rasmussen, seconded by Pamela Parks, and unanimously approved to adjourn the public hearing.

     Immediately thereafter, it was moved by Jim Rasmussen, seconded by Missy Fenn, and unanimously approved to accept the recommendation of the Plan Commission to grant the zoning change from R-1 Residential to C-2 Commercial Property for the lot located at 295 East State Street in the Village of Iola.

     Moved by Jim Rasmussen, seconded by Terry Murphy, for the board to give Ryan Langman a $2.00 per hour raise effective August 1, 2018 ( 50 cents per hour for one year anniversary pay increase and 50 cents per hour for each of the 3 certified operator exams passed), motion carried.

     Kathy updated the board on the proposed disc golf project. Jim gave a library addition construction update. Terry thanked everyone for cards and flowers received during his illness.

     The monthly bills were presented to the finance committee for approval. The finance committee examined the bills and recommended that they be allowed.
